    Happy birthday to one of the important living composers of our time.

    Ya know...I misplaced my Arvo Part and now the machine won't run!
    In theory there is no difference between theory and practice, but in practice there is.

    I really like his music too, although not all of it. I think of Tabula Rasa as one of the best discs in my collection.

    I adore the height of his Tintinabuli works - the St John Passion, Miserere, Sarah was 90 Years Old, etc. But I think part of what I loved was the sound, as much as the composition; that piercing countertenor sound in a huge reverb. Now that he's trying to extend the same principles to orchestral works it's not so profound.
